“…that we became more truly catholic – we’re not the Church of the Republican Party at prayer that we supposedly were for most of our life, but we’re also not the Church of the liberal iconoclasts that we were starting around the 70s. Our parishes better reflect American society at large: few of them are made up of members of any one race or class or political viewpoint.”

the vibrancy of our worship and the numbers of people finding God through our liturgies and our preaching of the Gospel.

Ann Fontaine

Unconditional welcome and sharing worship with all.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
